Eight Bells “The Captains Daughter” LP Pre-Sale
The Flenser is proud to release the vinyl edition of Portland, Oregon’s Eight Bells debut album The Captain’s Daughter, originally released on CD by Seventh Rule Recordings. Engineered by sound mastermind Billy Anderson (Melvins, Neurosis, Agalloch), The Captain’s Daughter is comprised of four organic soundscapes that oscillate seamlessly between the tranquil and the terrifying. The Captain’s Daughter is a genre defying masterwork of heavy music that draws from psychedelic rock, black metal and ambient metal.
Eight Bells is a power trio formed from the ashes of the San Francisco Bay Area dark-psychedelic institution SubArachnoid Space. Eight Bells continues in SubArachnoid Space’s tradition of heavy guitar exploration, adding a blackened dissonance to the mix with minimalist vocals.
This will be pressed on both black and red vinyl. Red Vinyl is limited to 300 copies.

Melbourne, Australia’s formidable black metal entity Loss Of Self has teamed up with avant-garde metal label, The Flenser to release an EP entitled Twelve Minutes. Twelve Minutes is the post-black metal outfit’s follow-up to highly acclaimed 2012 debut demo, available worldwide on September 2, 2013. Twelve Minutes features six brand new songs as well as remastered versions of the original three demo tracks clocking in at just under 30 minutes. Twelve Minutes was mastered by James Plotkin (SUNN O))), NADJA, ISIS). The dark, sweeping soundscapes realized by members Jacob, Rohan, Thomas, and Michael exhibit a coherence of post-rock and twisted black metal that surpasses all musical boundaries and restrictions. The artwork for Twelve Minutes was conceived and illustrated by the band.
Loss Of Self began mid 2012 in Melbourne, Australia as a self-contained two person group. Upon the completion of the 2012 demo, the band grew into what is now the full line-up featured on the Twelve Minutes EP.
Pitchfork posted a track off of Twelve Minutes entitled “There Must Be Great Wisdom With Great Death”
